Stay close to me and I’ll drive you… Stay calm, with me you are safe
The important thing is that you don’t go out alone..
Let’s go under that roof… Luckily there there isn’t sun
To be born albino in South East Africa means to have to fight every day against two terrible enemies: the sun and the hunters. The sun kills them slowly, the hunters in one go.
The bones torn from albinos still alive are the ‘ingredients’ of aberrant tribal rituals.
My name is Francesco Caiazza, I am a photographer and use my photos as a tool to improve some lives.
For some years my personal goal has been to recognise and subsequently to attribute power to the art as a mean of changing things in practice.
Solidary calendars and photo exhibitions are the tools that I use to raise money, to raise awareness and make facts known to that world that still ignore what is happening there, miles away from our comfortable lives.
When I met them for the first time they all slept on the floor, 60 bodies like 60 dogs. Today, thanks to what my photos have disclosed, they have beds, mattresses and a roof…. And it does not end here.
Art produces inspirations that spread. Other artistic no-profit projects were born after that first time.
My name is Francesco Caiazza, I am a photographer, specialized in portraits. Since 2004 I am working as photographer volunteer for NGO. I worked for NGO JatunSancha in Ecuador,Onetwotree in Guatemala and for Africaintesta in Tanzania. Although the projects are different, the tool is always the same: helping community in order to improve them. My projects are aimed, using pictures, to raise money and awareness.
